Getting there and away

  • Public Transport: AirBART shuttle buses and AC Transit's Lines 73 and 805 buses take passengers between the terminal and the Coliseum/Oakland Airport station, from where there are connections on Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART). AirBART generally comes more often than AC Transit buses after 9:30pm daily. AirBART and Line 73 run during regular hours from about 5:00am to midnight, whereas Line 805 is a night bus that runs from midnight to 5:00am. A 3.2 mile (5 kilometres) extension of BART from Oakland Coliseum station to the airport is anticipated to start in mid-2010. A completion date for the project is set for sometime during 2013.
  • Car: Oakland International is accessible from Interstate 880 (Nimitz Freeway) which is 2 miles (3 km) away. The airport can be reached by exiting Hegenberger Road or 98th Avenue. Rental cars are available at the airport and there are also taxis.
